Disco Queen Vs Cleopatra

Imagine a cross between makeup of a Disco-Queen (who host parties at least here and is quite liberal about her makeup) and Cleopatra (whose dramatic liners have inspired us since centuries) and this is what I got. This is a beautiful look, a bit Arabic looking though but bold enough to let you not go unnoticed.

Lets see how to do this look.


  • Clarins Instant Smooth Perfect Touch as base for the foundation to stay put longer.
  • Clinique Anti-blemish foundation for matte coverage and no powder.
  • Shiseido Natural Creamy concealer

  • Clinique Long last lipgloss SPF 15 in Airy Kiss


  • Too Faced Shadow Insurance all over the lid
  • I used Too Faced Sweet Dreams palette eyeshadows in Nice Stems (warm golden green), Label Whore (Green and brown duo chrome), Satin Sheets (soft pink pearl) and Teddy Bear (soft matte brown)
  • Highlight the brow bone with 'Satin Sheets' and also in the inner corners.
  • Trace upper lash line with Bourjois Clubbing Liner in Black and blend harsh lines. 
  • Softly contour in the crease with 'Teddy 'Bear' and merge into highlight.
  • Apply and blend 'Label whore' on outer corners, crease and then smoke it on the lower lid to add definition.
  • Stamp and spread 'Nice Stems' on upper lid and also apply a bit in the inner corners.
  • With Bourjois Effet Smoky liner in Deep Green trace the inner rims of the lower lid and then extend the liner inwards and outwards as shown in the picture. Fill the gaps with Bourjois Effet Metallise Turquoise pencil and to add glitter use MAC liner in Girl Groove which has nice teal shimmer reflects.
  • Trace Girl groove on the upper lash line.
  • Add on dollops of Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara on upper and lower lashes. Top the tips of lower lashes with MAC Zoomlash mascara in Green is green. This mascara photographs really well but is not 'into-your-face' as seen in photographs.
  • Tame the brows with MAC Brow gel or fill in if required.

Its very simple look to sport and create bold drama. Pair it with cocktail dresses and sky high heels. Btw you can tone it down and not create such an intense effect if you like.......

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
